Coyote hunting offers near year-round opportunity in virtually every state. And coyote resilience is well documented, with packs thriving even in urban areas. Their hardiness and adaptability means populations need to be monitored and managed. During hunting doldrums, calling coyotes can lead to frenetic and chaotic nights. The skills necessary to hunt coyotes are simple, which makes it easy to pick up no matter your experience level.
August is here which means the most eager of us may already have fall season scouting well underway. If you are still preparing to hit the trails, woods, and fields we’ve rounded up some of the best ranked cellular trail cameras for your fall scouting needs.
Kayaking is one of my greatest summertime joys. There’s nothing quite like cruising down a river with a group of friends while enjoying the beautiful scenery passing me by. One great way to add to the kayaking experience is by fishing, and there’s no better tool to help know where the fish are going to be than a kayak fish finder. Having one can be a game-changer, providing valuable insight into underwater structures and fish locations. It’s important to know what’s good and what’s not though, so I’ve compiled a sampler of some great fish finders for your angling adventures—from advanced sonar technologies to user-friendly interfaces, these will help you succeed while on the water.
Seasoned outdoorsmen know that one of the most overlooked pitfalls that can ruin a hunting trip is olfactory in nature. All you need is for the wind to be blowing in the wrong direction and suddenly that buck you’ve been tracking gets spooked by your natural body odor, the scent of food you cooked last night, lingering tobacco product smells, hygienic product fragrances and more.
While there are a lot of products on the market to help mask these naturally occurring human scents, it’s hard to keep your natural musk in-check when living out of a tent at the hunt camp for a week. That’s why we rounded up the top three camping showers to help keep your scent hidden from the harvest you’re after.
Exploring our country’s beautiful rivers and lakes is a great way to experience the natural wonder of our world. There’s something pristine about being on the water and going with the flow of a river that you just can’t replicate anywhere else, and one of the best ways to get on the water is by kayaking. It’s one of my favorite ways to recreate in the outdoors; in fact, I just did a trip down the James River here in Virginia a little while ago, and it’s the highlight of my year so far. I try to help as many people get out on kayaks as I can and everyone I’ve taken tells me they love it!
Now, you might think kayaking is too difficult or expensive to try out if you’ve never done it before, but I’m here to tell you that it’s actually easy and affordable — you just need to make sure you have the right gear to get started. So, if you want to experience the joy of kayaking, check out the kayaks below to get started.
Though the best time of year to fish for trout is springtime, summer bites are still possible. All you need is to gain an advantage over all the other anglers casting for the same big catch. iSportsman is here to help, with these four trout baits sure to give you the upper hand this summer.
Prime time for bass fishing is spring and summer, and with the weather remaining hot it’s the perfect time to get out on the water. Cool off by catching some bass this summer with these three bass lures perfect for reeling in huge fish.
If you’re going to spend any significant time outdoors, eventually you’re going to need to learn how to start a fire. Otherwise, you had better get used to eating cold meals and even colder nights. Now, you have two different options when it comes to learning how to start a fire: first, you can do it the hard way and learn how to use whatever tools available to create a fire out of nowhere (like I did during my time with the Boy Scouts); or second, you can do what everybody else does and buy a fire starter, making your life way easier. I recommend the second option, as the first is only necessary for emergency situations (but it is good to know). Here are three of the best fire starters available to help ignite the flames of your outdoor recreation.
Having a truck bed tent means having your entire camp set up located securely in the back of your truck allows you to camp, hunt, hike or fish at an elevated level with the benefit of mobility if need be. We rounded up our top 4 truck bed tent picks for you to check out before your next adventure.
Hiking is a fun activity that allows us to reconnect with nature, explore scenic trails, all while staying fit. It’s important to have proper footwear when hiking, especially when it comes to keeping your feet dry. Just last month I went hiking and it started raining mid-trek — fortunately I came prepared and went to bed that night with dry feet, but other members of my group weren’t so lucky. Make sure you’re prepared and pick up one of these top three waterproof hiking shoes that offer excellent performance without breaking the bank.
